of nominations, john kerry at state, chuck hagel at defense and john brennan for cia, i remember being on the show and saying i think hagel will be the most controversial and brennan may well be the least controversial, brennan or kerry. i think -- i still don't think his nomination is imperiled. i would say you have it right. what you are now going to have in his confirmation hearing is an extended conversation about drone strikes, how we use them, how should we use them, how should congress be consulted, should the american public be -- it's going to be sort of a broader thematic discussion. and look, the fact is the white house -- if the white house would have preferred mikeis cough break the news two weeks after john brennan rather than three days before his confirmation hearing, absolutely. >> that pesky mikeis cough. you never know when he'll break the stories. susan page, ron widen is the leader of the rebellious group on the senate intelligence committee, not the chair, dianne feinstein who we'll be talking to tomorrow. but ron widen is asking this question and down at the retr

look at what the president's motives are for picking chuck hagel, i think he wants a republican to be the foil, if you will, for what he wants to do to the defense department which i think is do serious serious damage to our military capabilities. >> here we go. 44 past the hour. >> you could be a little more cheerful. >> i was trying to find the clock. >> you go all right, here we go. we're having a good time. nick sabin is here. be a little more exciting. >> i love him. >> democratic senator from west virginia, member of the senate armed services committee and co-chair of no labels. good to have you back on the show way over there. >> you're not used to this set, are you? >> no. i'm adjusting. takes me a while. >> i want to, first of all, joe, you brought some fascinating phrases from the first state of the union. george washington calling for quote adequate provision to support the public credit, providing for the common defense with the due regard to the economy and foreigners admitted to the right of citizens by uniform rule of naturalization. the first one. also talks abou

his remarks on benghazi. do you think hagel's confirmation will go ahead more swiftly that leon panetta has been there to testify? >> one of the requests made by a number of republicans was for a hearing on benghazi. there's a legitimate and urgent concern about protecting our state department personnel, public servants abroad. i recently returned from a trip with senators mccain and graham and others, bipartisan trip, and we saw very directly the potential threats to our state department and other personnel. so i think there is an effort and it's articulated and reflected in today's hearing that this kind of review precede the confirmation of senator hagel. i believe he will be confirmed. that vote will probably be next week in the senate armed services committee where i serve, and i think that there has been little shifting of democratic support and obviously a statement by senator mccain that he would not filibuster it. so i think the chances are very high he will be confirmed. >> one thing that's been pointed to me is general dempsey will acknowledge that the u.s. military d
